In the V Foundation's groundbreaking new series, Behind the V, host AJ Harris joins this year’s Vintner Grant Honorees for the V Foundation Wine Celebration, Rich and Leslie Frank, Napa chef and sommelier, Christina Machamer, and Director of DTC Sales and Hospitality, Liam Gearity to bring you an action-packed evening of wine, food, and entertaining stories to further the V Foundations efforts and mission to end cancer through live-saving research.

Join us as we taste through three remarkably diverse Frank Family wines while Chef Christina Machamer, winner of season 4 of Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen, prepares three summer tomato dish recipes to pair with each wine. This collection features our club-exclusive 2018 Winston Hill Sangiovese, single-vineyard 2018 Lewis Vineyard Chardonnay, and the soon-to-be released 2012 Lady Edythe Reserve Brut, named in honor of our matriarch whose personal battle with lymphoma has inspired our winery’s steadfast commitment to this incredible organization. Throughout the month of June, 25% of each package will be donated to the V Foundation to raise critical funds for cancer research.
